I own a '97 Riviera Supercharged and I bought it new. It was the wife's idea though, and of course she gets what she wants...

So then one day she went driving home and she crashed into someone on the freeway, so there's a dent on the side. But, she died, 2004, and now I'm left with the car... I honestly wanted to get rid of it an get a Caravan but I just noticed that it was riding so smooth one day and then I fell in love with it! I can't let it go now. The Riv has a series 2 of course, and it also has a full wood-dash. The wood is faded a little bit so it looks a lot nicer, lol. banana

Oh yeah, and I also have the, ''Riviera by Buick'' badge in the middle of the dash. Am I the only one with it like that because I only see people with it in the corner... Idk but here it is:

I'm also thinking of getting another ''Riviera by Buick'' badge and putting it on the compartment that the smoking stuff is in. It'll look nice there! But that's won't happen until a long time... But yeah. offtopic


and what else is there to tell... I don't know how to re-attach the red window to the light in the door! Here's a picture, if you know how I can put it back on, just tell me please:

I have the part, and all that, so just tell me how I can put it back on...
But anyways I also have some old Buick books about the Riviera (all years) and here they are:

If you want anymore pictures of my Riviera, just comment and tell me. Thanks! shoot shoot shoot [b]

and for those who say they aren't common in junkyards, I think differently;

That's the spirit! Nothing wrong with keeping an old Riv alive, even if she ain't perfect. Keep the car going, maybe someday you can fix it up and make it like new again. smile

(mine has been in worse shape than yours!)
